Why Not Let it Rock??
They should've added this to the Repertoire. Would fit nicely after a Me and My Uncle>Big River>Let it Rock??? Yeaaaaa!
This show is great Garcia's guitar is so clear. Could've jammed out the Jack Straw solo further but i guess they didnt get into like that yet at that point? correct me if i'm wrong.

A classic show with a fabulously abrasive "Seastones"
Never mind the DS->Spanish Jam, this show features one of the feedbackiest phil & ned sequences on record. At one point it sounds like they're having trouble starting a lawnmower. It changed my life!

Great "Sleepy" Jam
I had the Jam > Ship as filler on one of the Egypt 78 tapes, and the person I traded with had labeled it Sleepy Jam, and man it is good.
The Dark Star > Spanish is another highlight of an excellent all around show. I have the whole show in rotation, not just pieces. Really great tape!

Tough sell, but I'm buyin'!
I'm not generally a fan of '74 shows, for reasons I think I've explained in other reviews, and I freakin' HATE Seastones. That said, '74 has some gems even for my treasure chest, and this is one of them, and a great recording too. When I first listened to it maybe a month ago, I didn't see much special about it, but deeper listening uncovers some truly amazing, intricate and dense riffing by everyone, particularly Godchaux on piano and Garcia. The vocals and harmonies are as clear, exact and sharp as a 5 AM dew drop catching the first rays of the sun; I don't normally wax poetic, but this show deserves it. Even El Paso, a tune I normally shrug off, is something special here. Thanks so much for this gem, in my opinion the best version of a truly great recording of a classically good show. Eh, I guess Seastones ain't that bad, either. I'd have enjoyed its trippiness if I'd been there in the right frame of mind.

Thanx Jerry, Rob and John. Very nice '74 aud recording. I have, for over 25 years, the Ship and Big River as filler. We always called it the gothic sound for lack of a better description. I have to completely recommend this show, though I didn't like it quite as much as some of the other reviewers. I am grateful to get this in it's entirety. I am opening my radio show this week with Uncle John's. Peace

I had gotten this show back in the 80's and quickly became one of my faves. Then it disappeared when all my tapes where stolen at the '88 spectrum shows. July 2 2009 is the first time i have heard this show since then and not only does it still kick ass, but the quality far exceeds the multi-generational tape that i had. Better than i could ever imagine.
Cudos for the mixer, the sound quality is amazing and certainly much better then any tape i had back in the day. Hope Jerry is smoken a big fat one with Pig, Brent, Keith!

Thank you Jerry Moore!
RIP brother. With recordings like this, why would you ever look for a soundboard. I never knew you on a personal level, but you will be missed.

Above average recording for the Wall of Sound era...Is this not the longest BTW I have ever seen? I really dig the old Bobby ballads, to me they are the perfect match of Bobby vocals and Jerry playing

The best night of the best month of the best year of the best band
This is undoubtedly my dessert island pick! I've long since worn out my old tapes of this show, which were umpteenth generation Moores. I like this recording the best (although I suppose it's worth saying that I prefer a good audience recording to a soundboard). And this is a great audience recording!
Show highlights: Dark Star > Spanish Jam > US Blues. The strictly instrumental DS>SJ gets nice and spacey and then seamlessly morphs into US Blues that kicks serious ass. This is my favorite 20 minutes of GD music. The Ship of Fools is also top in my book. Everything in this show was inspired, including those songs I usually don't like much.

Wall of Sound
The one and only Let It Rock, the debut of Seastones, crazy song selections from Jerry, hypnotic Dark Star, and one of the all time best ever U.S. Blues! Plus Jerry Moore did great job recording this, it really sounds good, he had quality deck & mikes, I reckon...
